Overall, NY hospital services improving

WGRZ.com/Gannett, August 12, 2013
ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Hospitals in New York have improved the quality of many of their services over the past several years, but patients are at increased risk of infections during their stay, according to a watchdog group that grades the state's hospitals. The Niagara Health Quality Coalition on Sunday released its 2013 New York State Hospital Report Card, including the safest hospitals and those that have more safety issues to address. Among 23 facilities that received the organization's America's Safest Hospitals designation were Putnam Hospital Center in Carmel, Putnam County; Vassar Brothers Medical Center in Poughkeepsie; White Plains Hospital Center in White Plains; and Rochester General Hospital in Monroe County.
